Crickets

What is it about crickets that can make it seem like time can stand still? The sound of crickets chirping on an early fall evening can transport you through time.
You can find yourself for a moment once again barefoot in your Grandmother’s back yard, clinging to the memories of the days filled with summer fun. Knowing that the pink streaks of sunlight fading into the dark night sky will be your final call to go inside. You close your eyes so you won’t have to see, then you hear the melodious chorus begin. But as the crisp chill of the fall breeze awakens you from your dreams of times gone by, you surrender your daydreams to the crickets and go inside.
